Introduction
Static Electricity Precautions
It is quite easy to inadvertently damage your PC, system board, components
or devices even before installing them in your system unit. Static electrical discharge can damage computer components without causing any signs of physical
damage. You must take extra care in handling them to ensure against electrostatic build-up.
1.
To prevent electrostatic build-up, leave the system board in its anti-static bag
until you are ready to install it.
2.
Wear an antistatic wrist strap.
3.
Do all preparation work on a static-free surface.
4.
Hold the device only by its edges. Be careful not to touch any of the components, contacts or connections.
5.
Avoid touching the pins or contacts on all modules and connectors. Hold
modules or connectors by their ends.
Important:
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage your processor, disk drive and
other components. Perform the upgrade instruction procedures described
at an ESD workstation only. If such a station is not available, you can
provide some ESD protection by wearing an antistatic wrist strap and
attaching it to a metal part of the system chassis. If a wrist strap is
unavailable, establish and maintain contact with the system chassis
throughout any procedures requiring ESD protection.
Safety Measures
To avoid damage to the system:
• Use the correct DC input voltage range.
To reduce the risk of electric shock:
• Unplug the power cord before removing the system chassis cover for installation or servicing. After installation or servicing, cover the system chassis
before plugging the power cord.
Battery:
• Danger of explosion if battery incorrectly replaced.
• Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommend by the manufacturer.
• Dispose of used batteries according to local ordinance.

Safety Precautions
• Use the correct DC input voltage range.
• Unplug the power cord before removing the system chassis cover for installation or servicing. After installation or servicing, cover the system chassis before plugging the power cord.
• Danger of explosion if battery incorrectly replaced.
• Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommend by the manufacturer.
• Dispose of used batteries according to local ordinance.
• Keep this system away from humidity.
• Place the system on a stable surface. Dropping it or letting it fall may cause
damage.
• The openings on the system are for air ventilation to protect the system from
overheating. DO NOT COVER THE OPENINGS.
• Place the power cord in such a way that it will not be stepped on. Do not place
anything on top of the power cord. Use a power cord that has been approved
for use with the system and that it matches the voltage and current marked
on the system’s electrical range label.
• If the system will not be used for a long time, disconnect it from the power
source to avoid damage by transient overvoltage.
• If one of the following occurs, consult a service personnel:
- The power cord or plug is damaged.
- Liquid has penetrated the system.
- The system has been exposed to moisture.
- The system is not working properly.
- The system dropped or is damaged.
- The system has obvious signs of breakage.
• The unit uses a three-wire ground cable which is equipped with a third pin to
ground the unit and prevent electric shock. Do not defeat the purpose of this
pin. If your outlet does not support this kind of plug, contact your electrician
to replace the outlet.
• Disconnect the system from the DC outlet before cleaning. Use a damp cloth.
Do not use liquid or spray detergents for cleaning.

BIOS Setup
Chapter 7 - BIOS Setup
Overview
The BIOS is a program that takes care of the basic level of communication between the CPU and peripherals. It contains codes for various advanced features
found in this system board. The BIOS allows you to configure the system and
save the configuration in a battery-backed CMOS so that the data retains even
when the power is off. In general, the information stored in the CMOS RAM of
the EEPROM will stay unchanged unless a configuration change has been made
such as a hard drive replaced or a device added.
It is possible that the CMOS battery will fail causing CMOS data loss. If this happens, you need to install a new CMOS battery and reconfigure the BIOS settings.
Note:
The BIOS is constantly updated to improve the performance of the system board; therefore the BIOS screens in this chapter may not appear
the same as the actual one. These screens are for reference purpose
only.
Default Configuration
Most of the configuration settings are either predefined according to the Load Optimal Defaults settings which are stored in the BIOS or are automatically detected
and configured without requiring any actions. There are a few settings that you
may need to change depending on your system configuration.
Entering the BIOS Setup Utility
The BIOS Setup Utility can only be operated from the keyboard and all commands are keyboard commands. The commands are available at the right side of
each setup screen.
The BIOS Setup Utility does not require an operating system to run. After you
power up the system, the BIOS message appears on the screen and the memory
count begins. After the memory test, the message “Press DEL to run setup” will
appear on the screen. If the message disappears before you respond, restart the
system or press the “Reset” button. You may also restart the system by pressing
the <Ctrl> <Alt> and <Del> keys simultaneously.

Troubleshooting Checklist
This chapter of the manual is designed to help you with problems that you may
encounter with your personal computer. To efficiently troubleshoot your system,
treat each problem individually. This is to ensure an accurate diagnosis of the
problem in case a problem has multiple causes.
Some of the most common things to check when you encounter problems while
using your system are listed below.
1.
The power switch of each peripheral device is turned on.
2.
All cables and power cords are tightly connected.
3.
The electrical outlet to which your peripheral devices are connected is working. Test the outlet by plugging in a lamp or other electrical device.
4.
The monitor is turned on.
5.
The display’s brightness and contrast controls are adjusted properly.
6.
All add-in boards in the expansion slots are seated securely.
7.
Any add-in board you have installed is designed for your system and is set
up correctly.
Monitor/Display
If the display screen remains dark after the system is turned on:
206
1.
Make sure that the monitor’s power switch is on.
2.
Check that one end of the monitor’s power cord is properly attached to the
monitor and the other end is plugged into a working AC outlet. If necessary,
try another outlet.
3.
Check that the video input cable is properly attached to the monitor and the
system’s display adapter.
4.
Adjust the brightness of the display by turning the monitor’s brightness control knob.
Troubleshooting

The picture seems to be constantly moving.
1.
The monitor has lost its vertical sync. Adjust the monitor’s vertical sync.
2.
Move away any objects, such as another monitor or fan, that may be creating
a magnetic field around the display.
3.
Make sure your video card’s output frequencies are supported by this monitor.
The screen seems to be constantly wavering.
1.
If the monitor is close to another monitor, the adjacent monitor may need
to be turned off. Fluorescent lights adjacent to the monitor may also cause
screen wavering.
Power Supply
When the computer is turned on, nothing happens.
1.
Check that one end of the AC power cord is plugged into a live outlet and the
other end properly plugged into the back of the system.
2.
Make sure that the voltage selection switch on the back panel is set for the
correct type of voltage you are using.
3.
The power cord may have a “short” or “open”. Inspect the cord and install a
new one if necessary.
Hard Drive
Hard disk failure.
1.
Make sure the correct drive type for the hard disk drive has been entered in
the BIOS.
2.
If the system is configured with two hard drives, make sure the bootable
(first) hard drive is configured as Master and the second hard drive is configured as Slave. The master hard drive must have an active/bootable partition.
Excessively long formatting period.
If your hard drive takes an excessively long period of time to format, it is likely a
cable connection problem. However, if your hard drive has a large capacity, it will
take a longer time to format.

Troubleshooting
Serial Port
The serial device (modem, printer) doesn’t output anything or is outputting garbled characters.
1.
Make sure that the serial device’s power is turned on and that the device is
on-line.
2.
Verify that the device is plugged into the correct serial port on the rear of the
computer.
3.
Verify that the attached serial device works by attaching it to a serial port
that is working and configured correctly. If the serial device does not work,
either the cable or the serial device has a problem. If the serial device works,
the problem may be due to the onboard I/O or the address setting.
4.
Make sure the COM settings and I/O address are configured correctly.
Keyboard
Nothing happens when a key on the keyboard was pressed.
1.
Make sure the keyboard is properly connected.
2.
Make sure there are no objects resting on the keyboard and that no keys are
pressed during the booting process.
System Board
208
1.
Make sure the add-in card is seated securely in the expansion slot. If the
add-in card is loose, power off the system, re-install the card and power up
the system.
2.
Check the jumper settings to ensure that the jumpers are properly set.
3.
Verify that all memory modules are seated securely into the memory sockets.
4.
Make sure the memory modules are in the correct locations.
5.
If the board fails to function, place the board on a flat surface and seat all
socketed components. Gently press each component into the socket.
6.
If you made changes to the BIOS settings, re-enter setup and load the BIOS
defaults.
